The work went well. The crew did a good job, and while they worked, two (maybe three) neighbors stopped to arrange for theirs to be done as well. I had done all edging and weed pulling to assure they wouldn't be slowed down. They completed the work in about an hour. They applied some type of emulsion material with squeegees, put a yellow guard strip across the driveway, cleaned up and left. We can...

The crew that arrived to remove the old asphalt was hard working, all business and very polite. They had several trucks, a Bobcat, and removed all the old asphalt. They also dug down to remove the spongy clay that would prevent a good application of new asphalt, and added solid fill.  They then returned on another occasion, when dry weather permitted, to put down the new asphalt. The crew trimmed ...

Went very well given unavoidable delay due to inclement weather, nothing they controlled. Just a reminder if you are looking for a complete by date, factor weather.  The work site was very clean and the remainder of the property unaffected by their work..

The original work was done well and in a timely manner.  It is the follow up that I am having trouble with.  Two months after the driveway was completed, my daughter parked on the driveway and her wheel sunk into the asphalt.  I called twice to have them fill the hollow spot before winter.  They said they would come but never did.  I called last week to have them come and fill the indent which I b...

Exellent company.  You worry when you realize there's going to be a person spraying hot asphalt with a wand. But nothing was masked off and the operator put the hot liquid asphalt down very precisely.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They dug out and re-did my asphalt 2-stall garage apron and then did a hot chip seal over my entire driveway with a grey granite chip.  It looks great and is holding up well.

It went nowhere right out of the gate.  The company never responded to my two requests for a quote.  I'd probably use them if they were responsive and if their pricing is competitive. Update:  I finally got someone on the phone, and they are supposed to come give me a quote.  Ratings updated until I receive a quote.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They never responded to two separate quote requests for some work on my sloped driveway.  However, I did finally get someone on the phone, so we'll see what happens.  Rating has been upgraded.

Modern Roadways responded immediately to my request for an estimate for the work to be completed.  The estimate arrived in the mail on or near the day promised and the work began shortly thereafter.  The crew that installed the driveway addition was very professional and meticulous in laying the asphalt.  The workmanship and attention to detail was outstanding.  After the work was completed, the o...

I researched, and researched 15 companies to get my driveway done right.  Modern Roadways came in with the lowest bid (significantly less!) and, I believe, gave me the best possible product.  DO NOT get your driveway done without including these guys in the bidding process.  You may be amazed.  I am 100% satisfied and have shared their name with many, many people,  They use a very large machine to...

They tore out my old driveway (4 layers!), added lots of crushed limestone and installed new asphalt.    They also extended my driveway considerably on the sides.
